I am going on my first cruise in Nov
and I have been reading lots of great info on line already, but just wanted to see if there was any advice experienced cruisers could give to someone new to it. I also have a specific question about tipping/service. I know that Carnival automatically adds $10/day/person to your Sail and Sign account right at the very begining of the cruise and allow you to adjust the amount at the end. They also add 15% to your drink orders. There is lots of info about food and activities, but I wanted to get some more information about tipping in general .. are people still expected to tip individuals (I know there are specific people included in the $10/day)? I don't have any problems tipping for excellent service, just wanted to know what to expect in that area. Thanks in advance for any helpful advice you can give me!!
